Glenwood Springs Branch
The Thunder River Theatre Company will present a very special bilingual Literary Night featuring Federico Garcia Lorca at the Glenwood Springs Branch Library on Wednesday, March 23 at 7pm. Actors will present biographical and anecdotal information about this Spanish artist, as well as readings from his poetry, plays, and letters. Federico Garcia Lorca grew up in Granada, Spain in the early 1900s. In his twenties, his poem "Gypsy Ballads" made him Spain's most famous poet. He was murdered by Nationalists at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War.
Jerry Barlow will be performing at the Glenwood Springs Branch Library on February 9th at 7pm. His Celtic melodies are characterized by wonderfully warm and expressive guitar stylings.
The Glenwood Springs Branch will show the Last of the Cowboys on Thursday, January 20th at 7pm in the basement meeting room for the first program in the 2011 Winter Lecture Series. This documentary was produced locally by historian Anita Witt who interviewed some of the last of the old-time cowboys in the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond. These men descended from original homesteaders who came in search of land and livelihood and who ultimately carved out the ranches that at one time dominated the area.
